Intelsat Monitors Formula One Race Cars
Officials from the BMW WilliamsF1 racing team tapped Intelsat to transmit mission-critical information during all European Grand Prix racing and testing days. Beginning this year, Intelsat’s 905 satellite, located at 335 degrees East, will carry telemetry information about the Formula One race car’s performance, including heat output, revolutions, engine performance, fuel consumption rates, tire performance and other data. Financial details about the deal were not disclosed.
